MPlayerX is an unreliable advertisement-supported program that may be installed onto the Mac operating system. According to the requirements presented on the official website mplayerx.org, the disturbing app is only compatible with the operating systems starting with the Mac OS X 10.7 version with 64-bit Intel CPU. The website is supported by Zongyao Qu; however, it is not clear which company has developed MPlayerX itself. Unfortunately, the website does not offer a Privacy Policy or any other official document that would allow you to learn more about the application and its creators. We believe that if these documents were provided, Mac users would rush to delete MPlayerX. Do you know why you should remove this application?

Our malware researchers have no doubt that MPlayerX is an advertisement-supported application, because right after the installation the suspicious program displays online advertisements. It is unlikely that you will expect this, considering that the program is promoted as a media player. In fact, many Mac OS users will not rush to remove MPlayerX simply because they will not link the presented ads with the supposedly beneficial application. According to the information presented on mplayerx.org, the application will play “your favorite [videos] in youtube, vimeo” and will “handle any media format in the world without extra plug-ins or codec packages.” Unfortunately, there is no information about the displayed ads, which is why we do not identify MPlayerX as a reliable application. In fact, we believe that you should delete it.

Online advertisements often appear to be completely harmless; however, in reality, they could be extremely dangerous. It is unknown what parties MPlayerX is affiliated with. This means that schemers could display their own ads using MPlayerX as well. Malicious ads could be used to lure out sensitive information that could be used in different scams or route you to sites presenting active drive-by download scams. The ads could boost traffic to useless, unpopular sites as well. Even though this is not harmful, it certainly is annoying.
